a lost opportunity

seeing as how it is largely off topic for this particular blog, i didn't want to have to comment on the confirmation hearing of SCOTUS nominee john roberts. but after four days of senatorial silence on this pressing issue, i feel the need to ask the question here:
Judge Roberts, would you seek to overturn the action-packed precedent set in the case of Alien v. Predator?

Direct from the AP newsline:
"If the Constitution says that the Alien should win, the Alien's going to win in court before me," Roberts told the Senate Judiciary Committee. "But if the Constitution says that the Predator should win, well, then the Predator's going to win."

O.K. maybe where it says "Alien" he said "little guy" and where he said "Predator" he said "big guy"

Overturning the landmark AVP precendent? Is nothing sacred? I hope so, since I'm working on the development of AVP2.

(But you're right -- it was a question that needed asking.)

Oh, god, if he doesn't answer that, I'm moving to Canada.

I have been opposed to the decision in AvP ever since it was handed down. Hands down the worst decision ever handed down by the court - and that includes the decisions in Plessy v. Ferguson, The People v. Larry Flynt, and Gonzales v. All You Punk-Ass Bitches Who Be Frontin'.

They should throw that question out at him, just to see if he has any real sense of humor or if he's just a complete dork.
